Digging in at school

editorial image

One of the popular activities and after school clubs these days is gardening, but this is nothing new as this picture shows.

In the ‘old days’ growing your own vegetables was a big part of school life.

This picture was taken in 1909 and shows pupils hard at work in the garden at Wragby School.

We know no more about the picture, which was used in an article by former editor Teddy Sharpe in 1978.
